We are proud to have built a full-service labor and employment law practice, encompassing everything from counseling and training to litigation and arbitration. We recognize that the most valuable advice we can provide is often that which prevents problems before they arise. To that end, we provide practical counseling and advice to our clients on the core legal issues that affect businesses. In addition, we provide management training and education tailored to provide managers and supervisors the tools they need to reduce litigation risk and manage their operations most effectively. Our goal is to understand our clients’ businesses inside and out and to tailor our services towards meeting the clients’ business objectives.
In the event of actual or threatened litigation, our combination of litigation experience and substantive expertise makes us uniquely qualified to handle all types of employment disputes. We have litigated extensively before federal and state courts, administrative agencies, and arbitrators, from the National Labor Relations Board to federal and state appellate courts. Our clients have regularly called on us to handle the most difficult and complicated legal issues. While we will vigorously litigate on behalf of our clients when appropriate and necessary, we also recognize that full-scale litigation is not always desirable. We are experienced in negotiating favorable settlement agreements and in finding creative solutions to resolve formal disputes while maintaining each client’s business objectives.
Our expertise spans every facet of employee and labor relations, including:
- Employment Discrimination and Sexual Harassment
- Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation
- Disability Accommodation and Leave Laws
- Employment Agreements
- Safety and Health (OSHA)
- Collective Bargaining/Traditional Labor
- Health care litigation
- Wage and Hour
- Wrongful Discharge
We are highly experienced in litigating and addressing issues concerning discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, and employee benefits matters, as well as difficult personnel actions and workforce reductions. We have litigated single-plaintiff, multiple-plaintiff, and class actions in state and federal courts throughout California.
